Is that library available in the arch-specific tree ? You might also want
to use "-v" with dpkg-shlibdeps to check where it finds the libs and so on.

You might have to indicate multipe paths in

I don't know when it'll support cross-build properly. In theory it's not
too difficult to do, it's mainly patching Dpkg::Shlibs to use different
paths when in cross-build situation and cross-build can be easily detected
with Dpkg::Arch (when get_build_arch() != get_host_arch()).

If someones comes up with a tested patch, it can go in quickly.
